I am playing the Lucky Nugget Casino and yesterday noticed they had a promotion running for 100 free spins on the Gift Rap slot. It is running for all the casinos in the BelleRock Group.

Today I called them to find out if I had met the requirements of the promotion, 1000 credits wagered, which I had. Then I asked how much would we be allowed to bet per spin. The tech had no clue and had to ask. He came back and said $.50 per line. That is the max bet on that slot.

I am wondering if the tech got it right because that is a huge amount to allow us to wager in 100 spins.

Anyway I will get an email on the 12th to let me know my spins are available so I will let you know if that is the actual amount allowed. Also, hopefully some screenshots of some wins. One can only hope.

Free Spins

I had this at Captain Cooks for another slot, but also RiverBelle is doing the free spins on Gift Rap.

It is down to a new feature that Microgaming have introduced to some of the slot games. Casinos can give a bonus as so many free spins at a fixed stake; all wins go into the bonus account. It is a bit like a big feature round. The free spins are played in the real account rather than a Flash insert.

To get them once allocated, just load the slot as if you were going to play it with your own money, you will then get a screen telling you that free spins have been added. You can play them straight away, or save them for later. The offer page will specify the stake per spin, and I expect that the 50c you were quoted was per SPIN, not per line, equivalent to a $50 bonus, but with a chance of more or less.

I have also played for this in RiverBelle, so I will see if it works as it should. All the BelleRock free spins expire after a week.

Wild Jack had a promo with 25 free spins of Gift wrap. (no deposit needed). Each spin was max lines, 50 cents total.

I won 4.04, which I then promptly lost trying to increase it to a withdrawable amount.

Joke!

That is a complete joke - I haven't even received mine! This is also a misdescription, as they are not proper spins if only one line is used!

They have just ensured this new way of giving promotions has been completely discredited in the player community. Now when we see this again, anywhere, we will know that we will probably be screwed by the hype and find the actual award is a cheat! Worse, we were not allowed to know in advance the nature of this award, and CS even lied by suggesting a figure of 50c a spin (but said per line).

Even Casino Rewards did not stoop to this, and gave all lines in play.

$50 worth of spins for $1000 wagerd would be fair, $1 worth is a total rip-off. I will NOT be depositing a further 55 for next weeks one, and my next depoait will be wneh I am offered a proper bonus, not one of these "free spin" cons.

When I logged in to the casino and opened Gift Wrap, there was a screen informing me of the free spins having been awarded. The select lines and coin size buttons are disabled when you are in free-spin mode.

I went to live chat, and it was confirmed by a supervisor that this is no glitch: 1 cent 1 line is how it is.

I wagered over $3000 and received $1 free spins :eek2:

May I take the opportunity to nominate BelleRock for the Ebeneezer Scrooge award this year! This must surely be "no contest" - it is worse than giving nothing!

Such an award will ensure this does not happen again as no casino will want the embarrassement of the retelling of this tale for the rest of the year, and being used as the benchmark for next year's award!

It's not a full dollar, the EV is more like 90 cents.

Now, I ended up exploiting this fairly well (partly because of the mystery going in). I deposited $55, I wagered it all once on autoplay blackjack. Then I requested a cashout (I wont 8 bucks yay!).

I still got the free spins. Hilariously, I hit the pick'em feature 3x and won 25 cents on them! And then I hit a good four of a kind, total winnings were $2.49!

I then ran it up to 8.49 total on single deck blackjack ($6 cash balance). The minimum withdrawal is $20, so I deposited $105, wagered $55 on autoplay blackjack (to qualify for next week!). My net cashout from all of this was $109.50, which means I actually managed to come ahead $4.50 from the gift rap bonus. boo yah.

But yeah, 1 line by 1 cent is just a joke. Max lines at 1 cent was more what I was expecting. This makes Wild Jack's $12.50 worth of spins look like I just won the lottery.

There's still time to play again for next week's drawing, I know everyone is psyched :)

:eek: 1 cent, 1 line? omg, come ON! You've got to be kidding? How in the hell did Belle Rock think that this would keep people coming BACK for that promotion... Wager 1k to win $1? lmao, sure, I'll be right there.

My results:
I hit the feature three times (for 5, 11, and 16 cents).
Total win $1.26, which carries a wagering requirement of $37.80.

By the way, here's a little nugget from the promos T&Cs:

The Designated Winners hereby agree that their first names may be used in any publicity material by the Casino.
The Designated Winners also agree that models may be used to represent them in any publicity material by the Casino.

LOL!

I hope there is some kind of CM award for this. In fact they must be trying for one - they slipped it in with just a few weeks left in the year.

Wahey, 1.07 win off of my free spins, nearly recouped all my loss (100) which I played through to meet the 1k wager requirement.

Thanks Belle Rock, my kids would disown me if I'm as generous to them this Christmas.

In anticipation of my 100 free spins logged in and played today. Have met the wager requirement for next weeks 100 free spins so looking forward to another 1 next Tuesday. Up 250 today though which at least covers me from last week and some compensation for playing for a few hours for a pitiful "reward" :D

This is the conversation I had with live help at Lucky Nugget Casino. I cannot believe how misleading this promotion is and as I said to the tech it is rogue behavior! Oh I won a huge $.07. I don't think I will bother to play it! I will leave it there and let them figure out what to do with it!

guest528 : Hello. I wish to get a message to your casino manager. I asked specifically about the free spin promotion on Gift Rap. I wanted to know how many lines and what the bet would be so I asked live help. I was told it would be all lines at $.50/per line.
guest528 : I have my free spins now and it is 1 line at $.01/per line
Shaun : Can I please have your casino account number
guest528 : Why in the world would anyone wager 1000 credits for a reward such as that?
guest528 : one moment
guest528 :
Shaun : One moment please
Shaun : I can see that the Gift Wrap promotion is only 1c per line, and the total value of the promotion is $1.00
guest528 : Where is that written on the promotion?
Shaun : The maximum bet that you can play on normal Gift Wrap video slots, is $0.50c
guest528 : Yes I know that. I asked the person on live help this specific question.
guest528 : He went away from quite sometime and came back and told me it was $.50 per line on all lines.
Shaun : Ok
guest528 : I told him I thought that couldn't be right and he assured me it was.
guest528 : You have a lot of very annoyed people. This is a very misleading promotion.
Shaun : Please note that this promotion is new to the casino and we are still in the promotion of rolling it out. It appears as if the person you were speaking to, was misinformed
guest528 : I just want your casino manager to know this is rogue behavior.
guest528 : Thank you for your time.
Shaun : It is a pleasure, and I will pass on your thoughts to him

I'm dying to see a picture of some James Bond lookalike with a huge fake grin giving it the large one & holding up a giant cheque for $1.34

Our latest Dollaraire, James from England: "I need some time for this to sink in. It's totally incredible. I never dreamt I could win this big at River Belle casino (dot com). I'll probably put it towards a new ash tray for my new 'my-how-the-mighty-have-fallen' Ford."

Thanks for the laughs everyone. It has come down to this. The US pulls out of the online gambling market for the most part and the casinos have to give away pennies for our loyalty. Or maybe they simply don't care! Well for one I am never playing with that group again. That was deceitful and misleading to say the least. Specially when I made an extra effort to confirm the amount and the number of lines per spin!!!!! Damn me not making a screenshot of that conversation! :mad:

Classic link Addisyn :D From the Urban Dictionary:

Boob: A boob is a big lump of fat that hangs of a women's chest. They have something in the middle called a nipple. Boobs make very great warm pillows. They are fun to lick and cuddle.


Anyway, sorry...derailing unintentionally, back to the obvious winner of the "Best Promo of 2006 "award :eek2:

That is not only infuriating, that's downright insulting to players! I expected it would be $25 (100 spins @ max lines @ minimum bet).

Surely to goodness this is merely some weird Belle Rock SNAFU ... a $1 bonus is ridiculous!

Well... they won't have to worry about me entering the same promo that starts today! :mad:

Mix up.

Perhaps it is a big mix up. This promotion was intended to run on April 1st, but some idiot loaded it for Christmas instead!:D

I won 62p, so I went to Londis and blew the lot on a down payment for a bottle of milk so I could have a cup of tea:D

It's kinda funny you dont see the Bellerock rep defending here, I guess the embarrasment is too much.
